President Clinton may have to hold still for a lecture on UFOs if he expects to squeeze campaign money out of Laurence Rockefeller.
The 85-year-old philanthropist was among the VIPs at Clinton's 49th birthday last weekend in Wyoming. It's safe to say that the venture capitalist has the President's ear -- at least while Clinton is vacationing on the Rockefeller spread.
Chances are the two men have, or will, talk about the environment since Laurence has been a conservation adviser to every Present since Eisenhower. It's also likely that Rockefeller will bring up the alien issue.
Immigrants from Mexico? No, from outer space.
Rockefeller has been pressing the Clinton administration to open the government's UFO files.
Correspondence we've obtained shows that Rockefeller has told White House Science Adviser John Gibbons that the government must put an end to 40-plus years of denial on the subject of UFOs, particularly the rumored crash of a spacecraft in Roswell, NM in 1947.
A Rockefeller-funded study on UFO activity -- conducted recently with the help of three former astronauts -- should be presented to the White House this fall, according to Michael Luckman, of the New York Center for UFO Research.
Rockefeller is also said to have financed a group trying to contact extraterrestrials with lasers.
What makes Rockefeller so interested in ET? Some say the octogenarian hopes the aliens will share their secrets of longevity.
"I don't know about any anti-aging cure," says Rockefeller spokesperson Frasier Sietel. "But Laurence's interests are broad. He's a real eclectic fellow."
